Description

Julia is a high-performance dynamic programming language for numerical computing. This practical guide to programming with Julia will help you to work with data more efficiently.

This course begins with the important features of Julia to help you quickly refresh your knowledge of functions, modules, and arrays. We’ll explore utilizing the Julia language to identify, retrieve, and transform datasets so you can perform efficient data analysis and data manipulation.

You will then learn the concepts of metaprogramming and statistics in Julia.

Moving on, you will learn to build data science models by using several algorithms such as dimensionality reduction, linear discriminant analysis, and so on.

You’ll learn to optimize data science programs with parallel computing and memory allocation. You’ll get familiar with the concepts of package development and networking to solve numerical problems using the Julia platform.

This course includes sections on identifying and classifying data science problems, data modelling, data analysis, data manipulation, multidimensional arrays, and parallel computing.

By the end of this course, you will acquire the skills to work more effectively with your data.

**What’s special about this course?**

We've spent the last decade working to help developers stay relevant. The structure of this course is a result of deep and intensive research into what real-world developers need to know in order to be job-ready. We don't spend too long on theory, and focus on practical results so that you can see for yourself how things work in action.

We have combined the best of the following Packt products:
